Four soldiers are on the run. They are deserters from the Imperial British Army. They arrive in a freezing northern English town gripped by a coal strike and cut off by heavy snowfall. The soldiers are there to persuade the townsfolk against war; the mayor thinks they are recruiting; the townspeople think they are there to break the strike. The deserters are led by Serjeant Musgrave, a charismatic visionary prepared to adopt shocking methods to convince the town of the evils of war. This magnificent epic play has become a modern classic, rich with song, poetic language and memorable visual images.
